Day 22 of #adventrecommends Scientists have identified Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver as the urban centers of what will be the biggest earthquake in the continental United States. There‘s a 100% chance of a mega-quake hitting the Pacific Northwest at some point—in fact, it's actually overdue. This book introduces readers to the scientists who are dedicated to understanding what patterns can be identified and how prepared (or not) people are.

There is so much that we have yet to learn about that which lies beneath. This takes us on a journey from a fungi symbiosis with the forests in England and urban exploration beneath Paris, to sunken rivers in Italy and war relics of man-made wormholes in Slovenia, to the ancient sea cave paintings in Norway and melt way sinkholes left in the retreating glaciers of Greenland. Underland is the story of us; of our planet and of our impact on it.

Love! Lots of interesting information and just makes me want to read more about the history of Earth. The chapters at the end, about our time and the last extinction, might be my favorite.

This book was an informative Caldecott Honor winner with beautiful illustrations that really help convey the information. The illustrations are detailed and display the Grand Canyon beautifully.

I would use this book in my future classroom because it expands on a beautiful scope of nature that children have probably heard of, but don't know about.

This award winner is a great read for children. The illustrations drawn are absolutely beautiful and help to extend the text.
